The flowers in the picture are beautiful! All the elements of art are seen in the picture. The texture of the flowers is very clear. I really like the element of space in the picture. There is not much Negative space and the flowers at the bottom of the picture look so much closer and more defined than the flowers at the back. Don't you just love spring with all the flowers blooming?

Tulips are my favorite flower. The element of space is very visible in this picture. The flowers seem larger in the front and gradually get smaller toward the back. The flowers overlap creating depth. The line element formed by the tulip stems. What a pretty spring picture!

Love the tulips! They look just like we have talked about in class; the closer the objects are, the larger they are and then they get smaller. I cannot believe how big the painting is that you are standing beside! Hope you've had fun!

With experience one would know the texture of the plants is smooth. Quickly you notice the balance inherent in nature and the lines of the stems are apparent, but notice the lines of the petals. The shapes appear to be the same, but they are like fingerprints. The white color appears to be a reflection of sunlight, and is that your shadow in the picture?

There are several elements of art emphasized in this picture. Color is used to show the beauty of the flowers. Space is used to show the great number of flowers in and around this painting. Texture is used to create a real life feel from this work.

I agree with Dina that the element of space is very prevalent in the photo. I even see some value in the petals where it goes from very dark pink to lighter colors. You can also see the texture of the tulips. Beautiful photograph!

There are many many elements at work in this beautiful photo!
There is the element of color - Complementary colors in the vibrant hues of red and green. (pink and green)
There is the element of texture - you can see the smooth texture of the petals and the rougher stems.
There is also the element of space. It is easy to tell what flowers are closer (detailed) and which are far away (fuzzy)

This is a beautiful photograph and the elements are used to only enhance the gorgeous wonder of nature. it really makes me think about how amazing the "art elements" that humans have created can be found naturally in the world we live in!

I love the tulips!Red is my favorite color! Value is used in the color from red to pink in the petals, dark green to light green in the stems. Space is visible in the close flowers toward the bottom of the photo with the flowers farthest away at the top of the photo. Form could be in the photo, because the red flowers and green stems and leaves are naturalistic forms. I also could see some organic shapes with the overlap of red tulips. I also saw a negative and positive space relationship between the red flowers and the green stems and leaves. Line in the stems and leaves. Implied texture with the different shades of red and green, the richness of red would make you think it is smooth, the closeness and overlap of leaves near the bottom would make you think it would be "bumpy" like wrinkles in your sheets.

I so love the tulip and sunflower photos! The pictures from your trip make me want to learn more about what all you experienced while you were there. Yes, the tulip picture did resemble what we learned in class about distance; the closer the object is to us, the larger it is.
